What is Open XDR?
XDR (Extended Detection & Response) is an evolution of threat detection and incident response (TDIR) that successfully breaks down the traditional data and environment silos of legacy SecOps platforms to deliver wider attack surface visibility, deeper threat detection – and ultimately, faster incident response. XDR does not necessarily mean other security controls are rendered obsolete. Rather, XDR platforms must ingest, normalize, and correlate telemetry from all sources such as SIEM, EDR, and UEBA to reduce noise, identify true Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), trigger appropriate automated response, and deliver actionable alerts.
Open XDR is a class of XDR that is vendor-agnostic in terms of its protection scope. Open XDR, sometimes called Hybrid XDR, is designed to integrate with other security technologies to avoid ripping and replacing them – thus they are “open” to ingest anything and everything the platform can. The key, however, is to inspect the quantity and quality of data source integrations the Open XDR platform provides.
Native XDR, on the contrary, is typically developed by a large technology vendor aimed at ingesting only telemetry across their portfolio of products – think Palo Alto, Microsoft, and Cisco.
Netsurion’s Open XDR Platform
Attack Surface Coverage
Minimize attack surface risk from endpoints, servers, networks, cloud, and SaaS applications to speed up threat detection and response.
Gain insights from an open platform that avoids rip-and-replace by leveraging your current infrastructure and tools.
Blend automation, machine learning, and human experts to investigate internal and external threats in real time before damage is done.
Adaptive and Scalable Cyber Defense
Cybersecurity is an arms race in which hackers find new ways to attack and defenders struggle to keep up. Netsurion’s Open XDR platform continuously adapts to new threats by ingesting global and local threat intelligence, applying the MITRE ATT&CK framework, and making sense of diverse telemetry sources using our Common Index Model (CIM) to identify new Indicators of Attack (IoAs). All of this capability is managed by our SOC to ensure optimal security outcomes for you.
